Setting eight records on Sunday, Pakistan also set a record for breaking the most number of records in one day, Express News reported Monday.

A weekend of bizarre record attempts in Lahore began on Saturday night when 42,813 people in the National Hockey Stadium sang the national anthem together, smashing the previous best of 15,243 held by India. The state-run news agency, however, claimed the number to be over 70,000.

On Sunday, Mohammad Mansha went flat out to set a new record for making chapatis (breads) – mixing, kneading, spinning and cooking three in three minutes and 14 seconds – while 12-year-old Mehek Gul took just 45 seconds to arrange the pieces on a chessboard using only one hand.

Neither of these feats had been attempted before. But Ahmed Amin Bodla beat a more established record when he landed 616 martial arts kicks on a punchbag in just three minutes, beating the previous best of 612 also set by a Pakistani.

Saddi Muhammad set a record by using his moustache to pull a 1.7-tonne pickup truck a distance of 60.3 metres, to wild applause from the crowd.

While some people might prefer care over haste when it comes to electrics, Mohammad Nauman lit up the crowd in Lahore as he wired a household plug in a dazzling 35 seconds.

Elsewhere, Daniel Gill and Mohammad Rizwan set a new record for heading a football between them, managing 335 consecutive headers in three minutes 45 seconds.

    What’s the point of anything. I hate the internet universe. Sitting in front of screens and commenting. Nothing really meaning anything. Hate this artificial life. And ET has the most number of pseudo intellectuals commenting including myself. We should ban social media and news sites and sports sites and video saying sites and all this stuff which makes us so pretentious.

    Killing of maximum number of innocent people in a day for consecutive period could yet be another record (though an unenviable one) this land of pure may boast of.

    I would have loved it if any of the set records was for anything substantial.Having said that good on the people setting them, at least we are in the news for anything other than poverty , corruption, violence and injustice.
    Any records for discoveries, experiments or actual skill in the pipeline?
